The grades have fallen.

Motivation is dead.

Finals are coming.

You’re haiku only has six syllables in the second row. I’d study extra hard before lit if I were you… 

I just realized something!!!!!!

The Regulus star is the heart of the Leo constellation.

Regulus has the heart of a lion.

Regulus has the heart of a Gryffindor

Okay starsofyoursoul I might not be completely done gushing.

idk man, imagine showing Arthur Weasley a gif for the first time. At first of course he’d just think it was a normal wizard photograph, but then you’d explain that muggles made it and his heart would just explode with joy over these muggles making such amazing shit even though they have no magic at all. How amazing. How inventive.

Maybe whenever you’re feeling bad about yourself imagine how much Arthur Weasley would enjoy meeting you.

I dislike steampunk and modern victorian style because…

incrediblerb:

It’s all frills and doesn’t actually reflect victorian society. You see steampunk girls acting like sluts, and men not acting like gentlemen. If you take the visuals and strip it of it’s soul, it ceases to reflect history. 

If you actually value the Victorian Era, you must also value the virtues that made it great and influenced the fashion. 

TOTALLY AGREE!!! I’m fascinated with the Victorian Era and the other close time periods around it — I have been since I was a little girl and I got a Samantha American Girl Doll, which is from 1904. Putting all of this junk into a time period that’s centered around conforming to a society where anything remotely promiscuous was scandalous, everything was private, and there was a place for everything and everything had its place, just because it was also a time of industrial revolution is beyond stupid in my opinion. So wish people would actually see the era for what it really is.  

Most problems in Greek Mythology occur because the gods throw more temper tantrums than most three-year-olds I know.

OH MY GODS!!!! Florida Georgia Line singing “I’m In A Hurry (And Don’t Know Why)”!!!!! XD THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!! I loved this song so much before, but now I think I love it even more. I hate to say it, but this might just be better than Alabama’s version! 8P

I just absolutely adore J.K. Rowling&#8217;s portrayal of the relationship between Ron and Crookshanks. It never ceases to crack me up. Especially when reading Fan Fiction. With Crookshanks being half-Kneazle and all, he&#8217;s extremely intelligent. He&#8217;s well aware of all the romantic tension going on between his human and that Red-Headed Git. He&#8217;s seen her shed tears over him. He also knows that her feelings are reciprocated. And he doesn&#8217;t like that one bit. We can all tell that Crookshanks is fiercely protective of Hermione, and just kind of know that he doesn&#8217;t want her to get into a relationship with Ron, because he&#8217;s afraid that he&#8217;ll hurt her. I also think he&#8217;s basically thinking "She&#8217;s mine. Mine. Only I can have her. Back away slowly, buddy&#8221;. And, like I said, he&#8217;s incredibly smart, so he knows what makes Ron ticks. And he exploits that knowledge at every given opportunity (Case in Point: Slowly eating a large, hairy spider while glaring malevolently at Ron as he does so). But we all know Crookshanks&#8217; attempts are futile. Ron and Hermione are meant to be. &lt;3 Now, this is the part that I really love to think about. The 'what happens after but before 19 years later' part. Because now Ron and Hermione are together. There&#8217;s no more tip-toeing around. And now, Ron and Crookshanks are stuck with each other, whether they like it or not (they definitely don&#8217;t). So they have to put up with each other&#8217;s existence for the woman they love. But I imagine that that rivalry will never die, even when Ron and Hermione eventually get married and have Rose (I don&#8217;t suppose he&#8217;d live long enough to meet Hugo, but I&#8217;d like to think that he met at least one of his mistress&#8217; human kittens before he died). Because, to them, it will always be: There can only be one&#8230;Ginger in Hermione&#8217;s life.

Of Carter Kane and Ginger Ale
Every time I have ginger ale I think of Carter Kane. I coincidentally tried it for the first time shortly after I began reading The Red Pyramid and it has since become my favorite drink. Now, every time I have it, I kind of smile to myself and mentally give a little toast to Carter. And, Sadie, for the record, I totally agree with your brother. It is so not an old man&#8217;s soda.

Every time I hear this I can’t help but think of Piper and Jason. To me, it’s their song. So many references. Saving Grace. When you’re young, you can fly. Love this song so much. Reallylisten to the words and tell me what you think.

I&#8217;ve seen tons of these on Pinterest and the songwriter in me has been driven crazy by them because I&#8217;m like &#8220;That doesn&#8217;t rhyme! The syllables are off!&#8221; so, naturally I had to make one up myself! As I mentioned earlier, I&#8217;m in a Christmasy mood, so this kind of came with the territory. Hope you guys enjoy, and tell me what you think!

WASHINGTON, D.C.—This summer, the Jezreel Valley Regional Project (JVRP) teamed up with Israeli archaeologist Yotam Tepper to expose a Roman camp just south of Tel Megiddo. The first archaeological investigation of a second-century C.E. Roman camp in the Eastern Empire uncovered remains from…

First Heartbreak

My best friend is currently going through her first serious heartbreak. Though I can’t tell you that I didn’t see it coming, because she was looking through rose-colored glasses, and had the nieve teenage belief that he was “the one”, it still hurts me to know that she’s hurting inside. She was (and still is) going through a really tough time emotionally before this all happened, and I know that it’s taken a toll on her for the worst. I’ve been hurt and abandoned by the most important man in a girl’s life, so I have an extremely difficult time trusting men. It actually so happens that one of the only men I feel comfortable around is said bff’s dad. He’s like an uncle to me, and their family is so close to mine that that’s what we practically are. When asked by her other friends what she’s doing on the nights we hang out, she always replies “Oh, I’m hanging out with my cousins”. Anyway, I kind of wonder if I’ll ever be like that one day, when I finally fall in love. You know, irrational and unreasonable. I’d like to think I’ll be able to at least keep a little bit of a clear head, and remember all of the lessons I’ve learned through personal experience and through others, but I still wonder…. I know that love can mess with your mind and make you do things that you would have never done had you been rational. I think she taught me that, in a way. I knew it before, but had never been in a situation where it actually affected my life. I can only hope that she’ll pull through this and realize that she’s one heartbreak closer to Happily-Ever-After….
